Trial Number 481

Trial Purpose:

To see if these 2 specific cleaning products at a desired concentration would erode the surface that the product is trying to treat.

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

Basic cleaning performance testing was conducted using ASTM G122 as the bases for cleaning. 

Clean off steel coupons until you can get as close to the original weight. Then you will go and place the coupons in the beaker where the solution was created and leave it soaked with the solution for 24hrs.  Remeasure the coupons and see if the weight has changed or not to determine if the sample has been eroded or `not.

Success Rating:

Preliminary compatibility tests on substrate coupons encouraging for at least one cleaning chemistry. More in-depth laboratory testing necessary.


The solution did not erode the surfaces of the coupon it must off been from the last test that the solution removed some of the soil that the coupon must of have before doing the test that was reported on trial number 277.
